Grape Sparklers

  • 4 pounds red grapes, stemmed
  • One 750-milliliter bottle dry sparkling wine, such as Prosecco, chilled
  • 8 mint sprigs
  • Thinly slice 1 cup of the grapes and refrigerate. In a food processor, coarsely chop the remaining grapes in batches. Transfer the chopped grapes to a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cook until the grapes have released most of their juice, 5 minutes.
  • Working in batches, strain the grape juice into a bowl, pressing hard on the solids. You should have about 3 1/2 cups of juice; refrigerate until cold.
  • Divide the sliced grapes equally among 8 Champagne flutes. Pour the chilled fresh grape juice into the flutes and top with the sparkling wine. Garnish each drink with a mint sprig and serve right away.

Lychee Martinis

  • 2 whole canned lychees, plus 1/2 cup drained syrup
  • 1/2 cup gin
  • Place 1 lychee in each of two martini glasses. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in gin and reserved lychee syrup. Shake well; strain into glasses. Serve immediately.

Vodka-Espresso Cocktail

  • 1 ounce(s) premium vodka (or tequila, if you prefer)
  • 1ounce(s) cold espresso
  • 1/2 ounce(s) Tia Maria
  • 1/2 ounce(s) Kahlúa Especial
  • To prepare drink: Pour ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a martini glass (or three shot glasses).
  • To serve (optional): Rub the pith of an orange along the rim of each glass. Dip rim into cocoa powder spiked with a dash of cayenne pepper; tap glass to remove excess. Pour drink.

Lemon Rosé Bellini

  • 1 spoonful lemon sorbet, softened
  • 1/2 ounce citrus vodka (optional, for a stronger drink)
  • 4 ounces rosé champagne
  • 2 to 3 raspberries, for garnish
  • Combine the sorbet with the vodka in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously. Add the champagne and stir. Strain into a chilled champagne flute and garnish with floating raspberries.

Mesgugana Macaroon

  • 1 1/2 ounces vanilla-infused vodka, recipe follows
  • 1 1/2 ounces coconut rum
  • 1 teaspoon egg white
  • 1 1/2 ounces coconut creme
  • Splash vanilla extract
  • Ice
  • Combine the vodka, rum, coconut creme, egg white, vanilla extract, and ice together in a cocktail shaker and shake to incorporate.
  • Place the chocolate sauce in a plate. Rim the glass in the chocolate sauce and garnish with the macaroon cookie.
  • In a tall glass container, combine the vanilla beans and vodka. Cover and steep for 3 days.

Orange Cream Mimosa

  • 2 1/2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice (5 to 6 oranges)
  • 1 orange, zested
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1 cup superfine sugar
  • 1 bottle sparkling wine or Champagne
  • Strawberries, for garnish
  • *Non-alcoholic sparkling wine, sparkling cider, or ginger ale can be substituted
  • Put orange juice, zest, half-and-half, and sugar into a blender and process until the sugar has dissolved, about 30 seconds. Pour this mixture into a shallow pan and freeze until hard, 4 hours or overnight.
  • Remove the frozen orange mixture from the freezer and let it sit to soften slightly, about 10 minutes. With a scoop or tablespoon, scrape out a small scoop and put it into a Champagne glass. Slowly fill the glass with Champagne and serve garnished with strawberries.
